Thanks everyone! I like the fence, it gives a foreground distraction so the sky is not so overpowering.. I centered the fence and tree on purpose, this was a centered composition.

Thanks to all the voters! My highest placing score to date. Thanks :)

Wow. Seeing the original photo and your final entry is even more impressive. The original is almost a 'could have been' shot. You did wonders with it. :)

Wowsers. This is only image 81 out of the 305 total for me, but it's the best I've seen so far. It's gonna be hard to top this one. As for the score, it will be impossible to top this one! 10

Pretty cool, I must confess though I am a little puzzled why you chose to include that fence, I put my hand over the screen to block it out and I felt the shot was MUCH stronger had you cropped it more "square" like just above the fence. Still good though, don´t get me wrong.

Very stock-photoish - beautiful and bold.

This would be a stronger picture without the fence. I love the tree with the sky, but your eye keeps getting drawn to the fence.

too much fence for me.cool tho.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/22/2007 09:47:33 PM
Please remove the clutter in front of this otherwise 10 image. This is such a stunning image and the white fence is the perfect touch. Love this image!

just my opinion though...and a little touch-up on the burned-out places in the sky would make your image a 10! (hope you are not offended)

Something about the simplicity of this shot just grabs my attention. Beautiful capture and presentation.

Beautiful.

cool. Nice dark clouds as well - the tree could have been blown out in too bright a sky...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

IMHO I think it would be better with the fence cropped out because I find it distracts from the tree with the amazing background!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very beautiful composition. Did you try cropping out the fence at the bottom. I'm not saying that it would be better without the fence, but its a suggestion to try. To me, the fence is just distracting enought for me to kgive you a 9 instead of a 10. Overall, though, well done and great photograph.

I like the directness of this, with the centered tree and the fence in foreground.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/19/2007 06:22:05 PM
Too bad you couldn't/didn't shoot around the fence.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/19/2007 02:43:51 PM
That tree is so visually striking against that sky...very dynamic!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I really like this one. The composition is lovely, and good job on the editing. 8

The composition works fine. Personally, I like solo trees for solitude type photos. In this image I wish the tree was in focus and not blurry. Something about the horizon looks off, like you've merged too images and didn't quite get the seem right. JMO of course. :) Good luck in the challenge.

Beautiful- thirds, color, composition, gradient tone of the sky- It's all here. Go luck, I really hope it goes to the top!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Composition is a little too centered for my taste, but I really like the transitions of tone and texture through the various portions of the photograph.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/18/2007 12:37:49 PM
Nice lighting. The centered composition works here. I'm a bit torn about the fence. It adds a foregroud subject, but the shape doesn't flow well. 7
